    I like everyone of Plodder's versions over Dave's. Sorry, Dave. Of course, we haven't seen Plodder's at the same resolution or size as Dave's...?

    No need to be sorry. I freely admit that I'm only a poor unrated artist no where close to Richard's class.

    Good progress today folks. I have finally mastered the Situational Awareness Map display. Here's the Scenario Selection dialog with the SAM for the tutorial. SS with Specified SAM.jpg

    Thanks Dave for the updates. If possible I would rather suggest to have the "Module", "Sort by", in a different color or to simplify the background. At the moment they feel kinda lost in the background to me.

    As a matter of personal taste I would rather have windows background made of a single solid color.

    Best,

    Hey Richard, I like the Soviet one. Not sure about the American one though. Apart from the white stars not being centred there's something not quite right with it. I can't put my finger on it. Anyone else got a better idea for the American one.

    I originally had a white border for the american one but it looked wrong. Maybe have a dark olive green border?

    Why does the Soviet one have to look all ratty? Like they didn't have proper uniforms in the Red Army :)

    I love the look of the little previews we're getting and really looking forward to trying this out :)

    Richard,

    You know the Soviets loved their gold braid. Can you do a version with gold edging so we can see how it compares with your current Soviet version ( which I like BTW ) but it does tend to make them look the poor cousins.

    Richard, I'm not a big fan of the star border for the American one. I love what you have put out so far.

    Dave, I have to say I am very wow'd when I see your willingness to incorporate the thoughts of your community. You're not only selling this beautiful product but also a fantastic customer expierence as well. It only makes Command Ops that much better.

    Something like this? I went for something resembling a rank epaulette.

    Put the braiding above and below the lettering, perhaps (two bands of it, like you did with the stars in the US one - which I think is lovely, by the way)? So as not to confuse the thing.

    The original US one with the 3 stars was great too.

    adding # of units to scenario listing is a nice touch!

    German: Spot on first go!

    US: The one with the white border looks best. The one with lots of stars looks like an Elvis show!

    Russian: The one with the stitched border looks best. I like the red stars. However the red lettering is too much. The lettering should be the same colour as the stitches.

    British: The red border makes it look like a colourful circus. The background should be darker and the red border changed to crimson or something.

    I have everything going at the moment - touch wood. I have just finished incorporating Richard's (aka The Plodder) new look CO2 logo into the start up screens. Remember one is chosen at random each time you run the game.

    Richard, you've just earned yourself a free CO2 starter pack. Outstanding contribution mate! :) Can you also send me a photo of you for inclusion in the game credits. It needs to be 90 x 120 pixels - just a head shot. Send to dave[at]panthergames[dot]com

    What do you all think of the following screens?

    Brit version
